What to Know About 2012 Audi A5 Quattro Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Audi A5 Quattro, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your A5 Quattro has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get A5 Quattro maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2012 Audi A5 Quattro!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Audi themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your A5 Quattro running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2012 Audi A5 Quattro problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Audi A5 Quattro Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2012 Audi A5 Quattro to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your A5 Quattro. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2012 Audi A5 Quattro? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your A5 Quattro may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Audi A5 Quattro battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty A5 Quattro) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Audi A5 Quattro won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2012 Audi A5 Quattro engine. See Audi's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2012 A5 Quattro in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2012 Audi A5 Quattro.
